You know what makes my gin journey so addictive? Witnessing my rebellious flock enjoying each and every sip. At Amsterdam Cocktail Week, I raise the stakes with three special Sir Edmond serves and mouth-watering food pairings. But that’s not all: you might just win yourself and three-course dinner for four… (Scroll down to see how.)
